GTA Coming to the Wii?

September 5, 2008 -

Are Nico Bellic and Liberty City coming to the Wii?

Take-Two CEO Ben Feder (left) wouldn't say yes and wouldn't say no during yesterday's conference call to discuss T2's third quarter financial results. As reported by MCVUK, here are Feder's comments:

With respect to GTA Chinatown I will tell you that we’ve spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with Nintendo and developing that partnership. We’re very proud of the partnership that we have to date.

 

We continue to build that relationship. We think we have significant value to add to that partnership and that’s not a one-way relationship in any way. GTA Chinatown Wars is not even the first step but certainly an important step in continuing to develop that relationship.

 

So without commenting on whether GTA specifically whether it is coming to the Wii or not, I will say that Nintendo and Take-Two work very well together. Nintendo and Rockstar are beginning to work well together and we intend to continue to grow that relationship.

GTA Chinatown, of course, is the DS title revealed by Nintendo at E3. No release date has been specified.

Any decision to move GTA to the Wii would likely be based on technology as opposed to residual queasiness over Nintendo's "family friendly" image. After all, the Wii has already been graced with Manhunt 2. The controversial Madworld is in the pipeline.

From a tech perspective, it would seem quite the challenged to get, say, GTA IV on the Wii, given the system's limited storage capacity. So perhaps if the GTA franchise does make it to the Wii, it will be a system-specific title.

Dennis McCauley, you're a fraud.  You have a posting policy below, and yet here you have allowed some idiot to use the F word above, and you allowed the assertion here that I am a homosexual.  Grow up.

Shut the fuck up.  You break those policies with nearly ever single one of your posts.  And yet Dennis has shown you more patience than most people would have shown you.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

If a GTA game does come to the Wii, it would be about fucking time. And it is possible to put something like GTA IV on it if possible. Look at the Wii version of Dead Rising coming out.

GTA4Wii? I'd buy it...if nothing else, just to see what all the fuss is about.

Anyone know if there's a SMG in the game(s)?

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

 

No, GTA 4 is too big for a Wii Optical Disc.  But I think they may re-port (remake and port) GTA 3, Vice City,or San Andreas for the Wii.  I did read that they wanted to make a port of GTA 3 for the Gamecube but that failed.  So I think this maybe the first time GTA3 appear on a Nintendo console (well, not counting GTA Advance).  It's possible Vice City may appear on this console also.  Same thing for San Andreas.  But it's kind of nice to see GTA3 series on a Nintendo console. 

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA for Wii could work as long as they focus on it and make it as good as the PS2 games. The Wii may not have the horse power of the X-Box and PS3, but it's got more than enough to run a GTA game. But if it's a quick cash-in, there's no way it will run well on the Wii hardware.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Dead Rising is also coming to the Wii.

But, GTA IV? Seriously? Come on. Sure it, would be a gold mine for Nintendo, but for the rest of us it would be a bad game. Like it said up there; the Wii has puny tech specs compared to the 360 and PS3.

My suggestion. Make an original GTA game for the Wii.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Will they fix the shooting for it?  I don't know how they could screw that up for the Wii, but some companies have surprised me before I must admit.

I actually expect this game to do well if they do go Wii, but I respect the fact of keeping it to the other consoles instead, and not going the EA type route and create a GTA for Wii, GTA Street Racing, GTA Cooking with Tony....

No, actually, he's likely been praying for this as his "ultimate proof"

Matthew Wilsonmot game related, but still interesting. http://www.polygon.com/2015/5/25/8654983/jurassic-world-chris-pratt-apology the fact that this is even needed in modern culture is a embarrassment.05/25/2015 - 10:26pm
Matthew Wilsonyeah, but with no voice chat its doa.05/25/2015 - 9:48pm
TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm

ZenProject Cars basically canceled for Wii U, Slightlymad Studios Head, Ian Bell, states "Yup, and if you need to pass this on, we really dislike Nintendo users" on Forum to Wii U players waiting for the game and disappointed in the news.05/25/2015 - 4:03pm

Goth_Skunka bonified game dev.05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkGranted, most of that feedback is going to be vicious, but if a novice dev knows full well not to expect their hastily strewn together game as the next Grand Theft Auto, such curmudgeonly feedback shouldn't deter them from their ultimate goal of becoming05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, Steam is a platform whereby these novice devs can showcase what they were able to put together and see what kind of feedback they can get from the community.05/25/2015 - 3:44pm
Goth_SkunkI don't think it's wrong for a novice dev to want to recover any losses from people willing to pay money for what they have produced, either. After all, every game dev had to start somewhere.05/25/2015 - 3:41pm
